MADE FOR PROFESSIONALS
From the outset, Pixaki has been designed with professionals in mind. The app itself is a piece of art, with a gorgeous gallery displaying your creations. Creating pixel art with Pixaki’s touch controls is every bit as precise as on a desktop, but feels more natural and intuitive. Built exclusively for iPad, the app is easy to use, but has the power to create anything from retro game characters to vast isometric cityscapes, with support for canvas sizes up to 512x512.
Pixaki reinvents color selection for touch, with its unique hue picker that lets you accurately select the color you want from an infinitely scrolling spectrum. Work with a full range of 16 million colors, or create your own palette for each piece of art. You start each new artwork with a gorgeous 16 color palette, derived from the muted tones of the Commodore 64.
Take the same workflow you use on the desktop to the iPad with layers. Create, duplicate, reorder and merge layers in Pixaki, with support for up to 20 simultaneous layers for each artwork.
COPY & PASTE
Select an area on your canvas, move it around, cut it, copy it and paste it, both within the app and outside to other apps. You can copy and paste entire layers too. Not only that, but you can copy an image from any other app, like Safari, Photos, Mail or Pages, and paste it into your artwork as a new layer.
ZOOM WITH EASE
Get in close to your art like never before with 400x zoom. Use two fingers to pinch in and pan around smoothly, without breaking your creative flow. And as you zoom, a grid automatically appears allowing you to place every pixel with precision.
Sharing is built in to the app, just as you’d expect. Send your artwork to your photo library, via email, via Messages, to Twitter, and to Facebook. Pixaki gives you the option to scale up your artwork using a nearest neighbour scaling algorithm so that you can be certain that wherever you artwork goes it will look as great as you intended. You can also email your artwork as a .pixaki file so that you can collaborate with other Pixaki users.
Export all of the layers from your artwork, including opacity levels to a PSD file that can be opened in a number of desktop apps. With the Dropbox app installed on your iPad, you can easily upload your files to Dropbox to continue working on them from your computer.
